    Dole Plantation/ Turtle Bay

    December 20, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 26 °C

    Today I woke up and made some guava pancakes for the group before we headed out to the Dole plantation. After a little traffic and a lot of beautiful views we arrived and instantly felt the hot sun beating down on us. After perusing the jewelry carts and taking some pictures in a giant pineapple William, Brenna and I found ourselves in a very short line for the maze. The length of the line was quite deceiving as it took us over 40 minutes to get to the front. Once we were in we all split up and I was left to my own terrible sense of direction. After 10 minutes I ran into William who had already gotten three of the eight stations and laughed when I told him I hadn't gotten any. After 20 minutes I only had found one station but my luck changed and in ten minutes I found four more. In the end it took me 59 minutes with the help of the map and cutting through the bushes. Not a very impressive time seeing as it was said to take 30 to 40 minutes. Next we went to Turtle Bay where we went snorkeling and saw hundreds of barracudas and many other beautiful fish but no turtles. With nothing in our stomachs we headed back to the hotel but decided to go the scenic route and stopped at a popular shrimp shack for a snack. At this point I wasn't feeling too well so I opted for just water to sustain me for the car ride back. We had views of beautiful cloud covered mountains that were full of lush green foliage as we made the long drive back. After a hot shower and a quick nap we ate a lovely spaghetti dinner before taking some NyQuil and drifting off to the sound of the waves.Read more

    Hawaii - Oahu

    February 7 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Meine erste Reise in die USA begann mit fünf Tagen auf der Insel Oahu. Es war ein sehr stürmischer Beginn mit 18 Meter hohen Wellen, viel Regen und wenig Sonne. Doch die Vogelwelt sorgte unter anderem mit Albatrossen für einen perfekten Ausgleich und etwas Sonne gab es doch.

    North Shore, Turtle Bay

    November 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Auf der Suche nach Wasserschildkröten fahren wir weiter zur Turtle Bay. Dort sollen sich die Schildkröten bei den Felsen unterhalb des Hotels tummeln. Leider ist der Bereich recht weiträumig abgesperrt, sodass wir keine Schildkröten sehen. Schnorcheln geht Matze aber trotzdem.

    Turtle bay beach (resort)

    September 10, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Being a big point on the street map we stopped by here as well for a quick swim and have a look around.

    Just out of curiousity i have looked up the prices for a double standard room in the resort you see on the pictures and it would have been nothing less than about 300€ per night!

    Yeah, why not stay here for two weeks!?Read more
